So, what you're saying is that you beat the rap, but not the ride!
But the very rare ride should be short and pretty painless.
I would say 2 1/2 years of riding is NOT pretty painless...
I was referring to the civil action, after being cleared in a criminal case.

Where would I find documentation of cases that involve civil immunity in self defense, justified, shootings? I still have friends pushing the idea of one losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil suits of justified self defense uses of firearms. Most of them are educated on the issue by the local gun shop guru types, but a couple of them are of the leo type.

I have a somewhat clear understanding of the statute law (somewhat), but I haven't found a Texas case that clearly involves the civil immunity clause.

Thanks for any help.

You won't find many cases where the act of self defense was clean enough to result in a no bill from a criminal grand jury. The few I have dealt with either directly or indirectly with other attorneys were dismissed after a motion for summary judgment was filed.
